Tex-Mex
In 2005 four longtime Florida State graduates opened Tin Lizzy’s in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood, giving their guests a unique taqueria with service rooted in genuine hospitality. Tin Lizzy’s quickly became a popular
place to work and to meet friends for refreshing margaritas and delicious TexMex cuisine. Soon after, other neighborhoods wanted their own Tin Lizzy’s. We are excited to bring our passion for hospitality and “friends serving friends” mission to new neighborhoods and especially back to Tallahassee.

    Ordered drinks for the table never got them even after our food was received. I understand it was busy but not to ever get our drinks from the bar is unacceptable.

I would love to hear more about your visit and have a second chance to provide you with the hospitality you should have received.

    Very small menu compared to what was listed online. That was disappointing. What we did order was good not great. It's a fun place Im sure for a pregame beer and a taco just not for legit dinner.

    Limited menu with few choices. Ordered some apps and nachos didn’t look appealing and were missing things like salsa, sour cream that were clearly in the paper menu description. Chicken tenders were served with ketchup whereas the menu stated it came with ranch. Served a $10 glass of Kendall Jackson Chardonnay in a plastic cup. We’ll aware this is a college town but we’ve dined there two years ago and it was very nice. Now like any excuse to serve sub par food and still charge regular or even higher prices for food. Won’t go back - waste of money and ambiance is just so so.

    Tin Lizzy's - TallahasseeResponded on May 15, 2022Hi, I am so sorry to hear we may have dropped the ball for you in several areas. That is not the kind of experience we hope to deliver. We will direct message you to apologize in person, hear more details from your visit, and see what we can do to make things right for you. Thank you, and we hope to hear from you soon.

    This experience was disappointing. I ordered a taco salad that was 90% greens and didn't have avocado or the lime vinegrette. Although the restaurant was nearly empty, we got little help from our server. When I was finally able to ask for more toppings, he said they would remake the salad. I asked for more queso (which for the price is a tiny serving) since my daughter already had her tacos (which weren't great). It would have been nice not to be charged an additional $6. When I got the salad, it still didn't have avocado, so I had to ask for that. And after all that it was still tasteless. The margarita was mediocre. For $50, I felt like I'd been ripped off. I'm not hard to please, and don't leave negative reviews. But I'm not sure why this place was so highly recommended.

    Tin Lizzy's - TallahasseeResponded on February 19, 2022Please accept our apologies. This certainly is not the way we want our guests to experience our restaurant, and we'd like to follow up privately so we can apologize in person and do what is necessary to regain your trust. Thank you.

    This is strictly a college hang out joint. We waited more than 15 minutes after being seated for anyone to even come to ask if we wanted to drink. Service was incredibly slow. Food was OK, nothing special, but pricey for what we got. We had to finally chase down the server through the bartender just to get our check and get out of there. Definitely not a place we would go back to but seems like a place for college kids go hang out.

    Something was going on in the back kitchen! Maybe the chef didn’t show up? The place was empty it was Labor Day Monday and the day after a big home game! Maybe all the staff were hung over? Our appetizers came out pretty quick but our mains took an hour an a half! The waitress came over once to let us know they were behind but never asked to refill drinks. When my salad finally did come out there was no dressing! Since waitress was sitting at bar eating my husband walked back to kitchen and ask someone. Everyone else’s food was cold so it was obviously sitting there for a while. Even though there were barely any customers in there we heard the hostess turning people away that wanted food. So there was definitely a problem in the back! I don’t know if I would eat here again maybe I will try different location

    Our reservation was for 11:30, however we were informed by snigger family that also had a reservation that the restaurant wouldn’t even open for an hour. I pulled in the door thinking they must be mistaken, nope completely locked. Why take reservations if you’re not even going to be open. It was very disappointing.

    Short staffed servers. Out of most menu items. Stated one cook in kitchen. All around Pitiful. Surprisingly the food items that were in stock and that we did get were good. Food and drinks are way overpriced for what you get. Restaurant is an amazing location and has the potential to be very successful if staff accordingly.

    One of the worst dining experiences I’ve ever had. Took over 30 minutes to get the first and second drinks. After 1:30 we asked to cancel our order to which the waiter told us it would be ready in 5 minutes. 10 minutes later they cancelled all of the food orders in the restaurant. Obviously a rough night but the service should have been better.

    It’s a super casual place with good food and great service. We were in town for a college visit. We went to dinner on a Saturday night, so it was incredibly and uncomfortably loud for us. My husband measured the noise and it was over 90 decibels! We could not hear each other talk. They did have outside seating, but no available tables. What do you expect from a college restaurant, anyway, right? Maybe it would’ve been a more pleasant experience any other time.

    Made reservation for 4 and we were seated immediately. It took 20+ minutes for our server to come to the table and take our drink orders. Service from there was even slower. Noise level was off the charts. Not the place for dinner with family. This was my 4th visit, and the noisiest and slowest service of the 4. On a good note, the food was great as expected. Sunday evening must be party time!!!!!

Tacos are great price and so yummy. But salads.. they forgot dressing. Had to ask 3 different people to please get dressing for grandma.

    Tin Lizzy's is one of my favorite fun spots to go when I'm visiting Tallahassee. I can always find a table when I use OpenTable for reservations. My favorite drink is the Detox Margarita. The food is good, too.
